After the Storm...

This was the sky after the tornado touched down this past Friday.  We were lucky not to be in the path of the storm.  The photo was taken where we live.  The sky was a mix of the most vibrant rose and gold.  It made the wet grass and leafy woodland seem like most verdant emerald.

This is a shot taken not far from where we live a few days after the storm.  They were not so lucky.  It used to be that you couldn't see this far back.  The view was totally obscured.  Now, trees with trunks the size of two of me were snapped in half.  Branches and torn limbs scattered the ground.  Clean-up is still in progress.

Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt. It'll take time to repair the damages.  To read more about the aftermath of the tornado CLICK HERE and HERE.

Tornados are terrifying in their randomness and their destructive power. Thank goodness you were safe and no one was seriously hurt as this storm passed through your town!
